here's sal. we're looking at contra costa county because a crash on 242 has messed things up. not only on 242 but also on highway 4. a lot of the traffic is coming off highway 4 and getting off 242 which is a lot of what people do. the crash is blocking the left hayne -- left lane. they are moving it. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, the traffic continues to look pretty good throughout. i want to mention, pretty good for this time of the morning. northbound 280 in san jose is getting slower. it gets better after highway 17. 85 is slow from 87 and 101 is slow from the capitol expressway. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. we begin with breaking news. we first reported at 6:30. investigators say they are now looking into two intentionally set fires early this morning at a san jose elementary school. ktvu's janine de la vega and her photographer were two of the first people on the scene
and, janine, we learned you even called 911. >> reporter: yeah. george and my photographer were just in complete disbelief when we were driving by. we saw the flames. we couldn't really make out what was on fire. but here at simons elementary school, this is the spot where it was happening. it was here in a courtyard. it was four cones and pylons. i brought one of these so you could see exactly what we saw, two people sort of throwing into the flames. this wasn't one of them. but this is what it looks like. here you can see the aftermath. we were watching. again, two people were throwing things into the flames. we immediately stopped and started shooting this video. this was at 5:00 a.m. you are looking at the courtyard of the elementary school. two people were there throwing the pylons and other items into the fire. that's when i called 911 to report it. we saw the two people run off. we immediately jumped back in our van and drove around to the other side of the school to see if we could catch them and
encountered teenagers. san jose firefighters arrived shortly after and extinguished the fire. they had just been to this same location an hour earlier at 4:00 after a neighbor reported another fire on campus which was smaller in the same location. arson investigators were called. >> there's the potential for this fire to go up into the trees and then possibly over into one of the buildings. we extinguished it. there was no structure exposure reported it to police and our arson unit and it's being investigated. >> reporter: police canvassed the neighborhood looking for potential suspects but could not locate anyone. fire officials found a vodka bottle near where the fire was started. it was taken away for evidence. firefighters say, again, it was not at that first fire that vodka bottle ail peered here at the second -- appeared here at
the second fire. but officials tell us they will be using our video to try to capture the suspects scene in the video. they are gonna look into the two teens we questioned because they claim they were just witnesses of the fire. again, a pretty unbelievable story. we were just here checking out the school because we had heard the reports of the earlier 4:00 a.m. fire and couldn't believe that we ran into and saw this second fire. there was also a school district employee who was there and also witnessed it and i think that's what scared off these two teens. we were quite a distance away across the way of the street. so we couldn't make out any faces. one of the things i do want to mention, this is not going to affect school here at simonds amount -- elementary because school is not in session this
week. jag, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. police searching for suspects in a deadly shotting. it happened at 1:00 on clay street. ktvu's alex savidge joining us live from oakland to tell us what led up to the gunfire. good morning, ail length. >> reporter: dave good morning to you. all investigators know, there was some kind of argument outside of this nightclub early this morning. that led up to the gunfire here. one man was hit and he died later at the hospital. it happened close to the entrance to the bella ultralounge. as we push in, you can see there is a surveillance camera above the front door. investigators right now are going over surveillance video checking that video hoping it may be able to help them make an arrest. the shooting happened just after 1:00. this club 0 is on clay at 12th street. security guard told me the place was pretty crowded when it all happened well over 100 people inside. the man who was shot was rushed over to highland hospital. that's where he died. it's unclear if he had been
inside the club beforehand. a cook who works at the lounge told me he saw people running and screaming just after the gunfire. he says the club does have a security team but it's hard to control what happens outside. >> outside, it's like the -- i don't know what's going on. you never know, you know, what gonna happen to you, you know. >> reporter: this was the 54th homicide of the year so far here in oakland, although this city has seen a dramatic drop in the number of killings recently. homicides are down 25% so far this year compared to last year. the count at this time last year stood at 72 homicides. no arrests have been made in connection with this morning's shooting. but investigators spent the morning talking with witnesses in the area and trying to figure out what this dispute was all about and also going over surveillance video and other evidence trying to identify the people involved in
this crime. we're live in oakland, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:08. we have new information about a young father shot and killed over the weekend in san jose. detectives now say 24-year-old richard watkins was killed by a stray bullet. he was standing outside of his home on azukar avenue waiting for a relative to park a car when he was shot. investigators say the gunman had confronted that relative and for some reason opened fire. the relative was not hurt. but watkins died there at the scene. so far, no arrests have been made. 7:09. a vallejo police sergeant is under investigation after police in bend, oregon say he pulled a gun during a fight. police say michael kent tribble was part of a dispute outside of a bar early sunday morning. they confirm he showed a gun but say no shoates were fired and no -- shots were fired and no arrests were made. the incident is still under investigation because of conflicting statements of some of the men involved.
according to the daily republic newspaper, tribble was involved in the deadly police shooting of guy garot in vallejo in 2010. that shooting was ruled justified. the oakland as are heading back here to the bay area after losing last night in the wild card game. they blew a 7-3 lead. and the game went to extra innings. but then this happened. oakland scored one. but the royals scored 2 to win 9-8. this is the third straight year, the as have been in the postseason and each ended in disappointment. >> every time we thought we had them down, they came back. and it's a testament to the kind of team they are, i think the bottom line we had opportunities to put that game away and we weren't able to do it. >> heartbreaker. well, the royals, they now move
onto the american league division series. they will be playing the los angeles angels. now it's the giants' turn. they will play the pirates at 5:00 tonight. but they haven't -- the winner of tonight's game will play the washington nationals in the national league division series. ktvu's brian flores is out this morning getting reaction from both as and giants' fans. he'll have that report at 7:30. for the first time, interests have diagnosed a patient with the ebola virus in the united states. the patient is in a dallas hospital this morning in critical condition. he traveled to texas from west africa a week and a half ago and was showing no symptoms at that time. but his health steady declined. he had gone to the hospital twice before doctors learned he had come from liberia.

maintain them. >> there are also big questions about whether the trees should be trimmed or just completely chopped down. either way, the homeowners say they want something done now. 7:26. independent engineers are downplaying the safety threat from the highly publicized bolt problem on the new bay bridge. they have issued a report stating a simple coat of paint and grease could help protect the bolts. their extensive tests on more than 2500 bolts determined that they are strong and safe, especially if they get extra protection from corrosion. last year, caltrans discovered a third of the bolts failed when they were tightened, raising concerns the new bridge was not safe. 7:27. this happened more than two dozen times now in the south bay. people having gold chains snatched right from their necks. the common links among all of the victims. >> reporter: it's heartbreak
